Abstract:

A solution to the problem of scattering of plane waves from a material sphere was derived. Results to date indicate regions of high energy density within the sphere that may make possible the design of small antennas wit large effective aperture . The results of this study will be more completely analyzed and presented in later reports. Substantial progress was made in the solution of scattering of plane waves from a material cylinder. Measurements on ferrite antennas were begun and problems of RF technique were encountered and partially solved. It is apparent that all test antennas should be as ef icient as possible and all equipment be adequately shielded. The study on a comparison of solid-state and conventional antennas indicates several techniques for determining the usefulness of any given antenna. Author
